Default 42 Fountain build #2

Picked up a new to me 42 Fountain with #6 drives on it. Boat came from Fountain with wet 900s but I purchased the boat without power. Objective for this build is to have a reliable 1-teens boat that I can have some somewhat trouble free boating with. Power for this boat will be some fresh merc 900scs I picked up last week. Thru some minor upgrades the motors should be making alittle more power than stock. I have plans on updating the camshaft and installing some shaft mount rockers but not sure when that is going to happen yet. Exhaust is cmi big tubes with 5 tails. Transmission are Huber 1450s. I think with this simple combo it should meet both of my goals.

I think you should keep it and somehow tie it in with a rainbow type theme...

Bring it on Eric. Look forward to seeing the finished product. Hell, I was kinda partial to the paint on the #4 boat but I'm sure you have something in mind.
